Bad Days For True Believing Justices

These are not the best of times nor are they the times of justice according to several members of the Supreme Court. The odd guy out, Justice Kennedy once again joined them damn liberals to protect the rights of American citizens. For over forty years, the Supreme Court has been defending the rights of women to have an abortion. Of course, along the way of fighting for women rights some of our more conservative justices have increasingly been moving in the direction of limiting abortion rights.

The state of Texas has been diligently working on laws that would restrict abortion rights. The latest gambit was to pass a law that,in effect, prevented doctors and abortion centers to offer abortion. However, good old Justice Kennedy joined liberal judges in a 5-4 decision that prevents the closure of abortion clinics in Texas. I assume Justice Scalia will provide more of his pseudo legal ideas about his version of our Founding Fathers. Of course, Jefferson and Hamilton and Washington wanted unlimited money spent on elections. I would so love Justice Scalia to show us those words.

Educating Russian Youth

It was my assumption that Russian schools devoted at least an hour a day educating children to love and obey the Great Leader. Of course,whine comes to Mother Russia there is only one Man who is fit to lead the nation and his initials are–VP. For some strange reason the guy in charge of Russian education, Dimitry Lianov, is urging teachers to focus on educating children about the dangers of extremists.” Students should know how to avoid becoming victims of radical Islamist recruiters,and whom to turn to in the event of encountering such a situation.”

1. Kids,remember that extremism is OK if this idea comes from you know who in Moscow.

2. It is NOT an example of extremism to beat up gay guys and lesbian gals. They really enjoy getting the shit kicked out of them.

3. If you spot anyone who makes negative remarks about the Great Leader then you can take extreme measures to silence this person.

Always remember that extremism in defense of our Great Leader is the good kind of extremism!

God Hates??

Having nothing better to do today, I decided to have a long conversation with the Big Guy up in he sky; After all, he spends a heck of a lot of time with Rick Santorum and Ted Cruz so why not a few moments with me? God made perfectly clear what He hates:

1. He does hate those who claim to speak with him, given that he mascot off any phone connection with humans.

2. God really does not care for the other God that Republicans claim is on their side.

3. God hates people asserting ideas that He never uttered.

4. God does not like those who prattle on and on about family values, does anyone know how many ideas about “Family” there are in the universe??

5. God is getting mighty close to sending a thunder bolt to wipe out the blond haired idiot women who never cease talking on Fox News.

6. Frankly, God is getting close to hating his creation of this strange planet called–EARTH!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Sweden,Local: “Top Song Of Month”

For Republicans, it is “tyranny of the Supreme Court”

Australia, Canberra Times: “Good Lies To Tell Children”

Wealthy people want to give good paying jobs to all.

France, Connexion: “Swan Confuses Road For Water”

Big deal, Republicans confuse Jesus as lover of wealthy folks.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “Refuses To Apologize”

Donald still fights for birth certificate truth.

Russia, Moscow Times: “Putin To Visit Pope”

I thought he insisted the Pope come visit him!

Same Sex Fears

The United States Supreme Court made a decision and Republican candidates for president–all fifty or so of them, also made a decision. Not a single one agreed with the Supreme Court. Mike and the two Ricks blasted away at the perfidy and tyranny of the Supreme Court which is imposing its will upon the American people. Let me get this clear:

1. The Hobby Lobby decision of the Supreme Court was hailed by each and every Republican as the right decision. No claims of a tyrannical court. I wonder why.

2. When the Supreme Court rules by 5-4 decisions that allow denial of voting rights, Republicans join in the Chorus about that is what our Founding Fathers wanted.

So, what is different about same sex in our land? It is against Christianity and Judaism and Islam. Or, at least what ministers of those faits desire. Why?

1. Firs they allowed men to marry women and women to marry women. What next? Dogs to marry their masters?

2. Just remember that this court could allow male donkeys to make out with male donkeys!

Would you want your daughter to marry a monkey?

Recep The Great

Turkish President Recep Erdogan is the Vladimir Putin of the Middle East. He is convinced that glory awaits his every decision. During the past few years this man who only knew success for years has gradually lost the confidence of most people in Turkey. They are tired of his grandstanding and assuming all power in the land. At elections last month, a majority turned down the Turkish windbag leaving him with the need for allies in order to form a government. He so desires to be respected –no, feared– by other nations.

“I am adducing the world. We will never allow a state to be formed in northern Syria, south of our border.” To translate his remarks in English. He opposes the desire of Kurds to have their own nation. This idea has led him to favor ISIS gaining power since this group hates Kurds. Sorry, Recep, the world does not agree with you. And, there is evidence, neither does the Turkish army!

Behead Your Drinking Buddy?

Every so often behavior by those seeking to behead infidels sort of gets confusing. Yasmin Salhi, a Muslim Frenchman decided to have a few drinks with his boss and then as sort of a dessert to chop off his head. He drove a truck,he hung around with some guys and came across as just another working stiff seeking to make a living. He was born in France, educated in France, but at this point in time decided that driving a truck loaded with explosives into chemical warehouse would really make his day a notable one.

The only sign of change in his life is the appearance of a beard. But, heck, walk along any street in America and there are bearded men. So,wha led to the change? Frankly, I do not have a clue. Is there something in the water in France that sets off ordinary people and transforms them into beheaders?

The Republican Platform For America

During the coming months Americans will be inundated with countless presentations from the horde of people seeking the Republican nomination for president. In an effort to simplify the enormity of materials we present a short version of what any and all Republicans will utter:

1. Taxation –lower for wealthy in order get the economy booming again.

2. Job creation, lower taxes on the wealthy.

3. Equal rights – we are for them but must ensure that ALL receive equal rights.

4. Racism– please get rid of that old idea,it no longer applies.

5. Police behavior –we support it.

6. Obamacare –we care not.

7. God–He is on our side.

8. Women rights– we believe in women, in fact, we even marry them.

9. Gay rights–religious folk also should have the right to be gay.

10. Benghazi– Just another name for Hillary Clinton

Gay Time In America

Well, the moment finally came–the Supreme Court ruled in favor of equal rights for gays and lesbians in America. One way to exam this issue is that by the 5-4 decision in favor of gay rights the institution of marriage was aided. I have never been able to understand why conservatives, who believe in family values have opposed laws that assist people to marry and begin to have a family.Anyway, five judges voted to support the institution of marriage.

Chief Justice John Roberts and, naturally,Justice Scalia are upset. According to Roberts and his three other colleagues, the Constitution has been violated.Yes, there is no doubt our Founding Fathers would have supported gay marriage. Then again,not a single one would have supported:

1. Government action to spy on citizens.

2. The nutty idea that a corporation is a person.

3. The nutty idea that one could draw upon religion to refuse services to others.

4. The idea that presidents could unilaterally send the nation to war.

5. The idea that state governments could fly the British flag to recall the good old days.

Life changes, and those who wrote the Constitution DID understand that new times required new laws.

Where Is Turkey?

There is one Middle Eastern nation which has a strong army that is equipped for war and whose government opposes terrorism. The name of this land is Turkey. However, President Recep Erdogan believes that Kurdish forces represent the greatest threat to peace in the region. He refuses to close his nation’s border with Syria to cut off new recruits for ISIS. In fact, Erdogan regards the ISIS nut cases as a good force for peace since they battle Kurds, along with a few other groups.

Erdogan hates President Assad and he will support any and all groups involved in the war in Syria. A problem is that no one today even knows who are the bad or good guys in Syria. Turkey is allegedly a member of NATO but it refuses to cooperate in the immediate task of ending terror groups in the region. KURDS for Erdogan will always be THE enemy.
